This restaurant has excellent views of the Wood's Hole Channel. The fish tacos were spectacular. It had a great tasting sauce. The service was fast, friendly and paid attention to the details. The owner Paul has been a restauranteur for many years and it shows.

This chef has created a delicious aioli sauce to make these fish tacos uniquely delicious. We had a late lunch this week with four different menu choices and we each thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was great! It is definitely somewhere I will keep on my places to return to.

The food was OK but not up to other meal we had I Woods Hole. And whatever you do Don't order a Bloody Mary. It was basically vodka and tomato juice.

Parking convenient at paid ($3) lot next door. Great views. Friendly staff greeted us. Steamers and mussels were good - not amazing. One of us ordered the Caesar salad with grilled chicken - drab romaine lettuce and very dry chicken. The fish was good but portion size was average.

Enjoyed lunch here. Food was good. We had table at window, and when the drawbridge was about to be raised, we rushed outside to watch. Our delicious lunch was still there for us. It's a fun place to eat.

It was a nice place to have breakfast that was not too expensive. We like simple breakfasts - eggs, toast, home fries, and this fit the bill. It is on the water and you can see boats going through the Water St Drawbridge.

Ordered mussels for $14 they came cols and a watery broth, then I ordered fried clams with bellies at market price $29, when they came they were... More

Went here for dinner two consecutive evenings. Not sure why all these negative reviews were written, but that was not our experience. This place is still great after all these years! The scallops were so good my wife absolutely had to have them again. My seared Ahi Tuna was perfect, like seared sashimi, and the wasabi sauce on the side... More

Having fond childhood memories from the 1970s of the old P.J.'s that was here, I was really hoping it would be good. It was not. We were seated when the restaurant was nearly empty, but then had to ask the waitress for menus, which she gave, but without apology for ignoring us. The food was way overpriced and not good....

We were outside reading the menu when a complete stranger encouraged us to go in - raved about her dinner there last night. We decided to give it a try for lunch and we were not disappointed. Service was quick and food was delicious! Two people had the lobster roll and said it was amazing. It came with avocado, bacon... More
